Free Sigils of Elohim A Precursor To The Talos Principle
Publisher Devolver Digital has a free mini-game on Steam right now, called Sigils of Elohim, which you can download right now for free. It’s used as a short promotional item for The Talos Principle, one of their upcoming titles.
Sigils of Elohim is essentially a small puzzle game. You’ll be given a total of 42 puzzles to solve, divided in four rising difficulty categories.
Each playing field is comprised of a quadrilateral space of a certain height and width. You’ll be given an amount of Tetromino blocks to fill the space, leaving you to mix and match the proper combination.
For every eight levels you’ll pass in Sigils of Elohim, you’ll be given a little slice of The Talos Principle. This can be handed out in the form of a relic for the game.
The Talos Principle is a first-person puzzle game where you’ll be connecting certain apparatuses and dodging enemies to complete over 120 puzzles. It’s reminiscent of some puzzle elements in Portal.
This is quite the difference in genre for developer Croteam. Previously, the team was mostly known for their work on the goofy Serious Sam shooter series.
You might’ve also spotted The Talos Principle as one of the games briefly shown at some press conferences at this year’s known conventions. It stood alongside other upcoming Devolver Digital games like Broforce or Titan Souls.
Since Sigils of Elohim is a puzzle game with few complex interaction designs, you can also pick it up on mobile devices, if that’s more your thing. It’s available, also for free, on both iOS and Android with a pretty small download size.
